“The Financial Times, of course, wrote wrongly, essentially wrongly. In the current situation, Moscow and Paris could not reach any agreement, it is simply impossible”, the official stressed during an online briefing.
He recalled that France is a member of the European Union and chairs it, but is also a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), where it does not have the leadership, he said, making reference to the main role of the US in the bloc.
Peskov expressed on the solution of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, that the Kremlin does not reject a possible meeting between both presidents and is ready to hold it if it helps to resolve the situation in the Donbass region.
Moscow denies any link with Ukraine´s internal problem and it has repeated that the authorities in Kiev should converse with the representatives of the self-proclaimed Lugansk and Donetsk People´s Republics.
The day before, the Russian president stressed at a press conference with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, that there is no alternative to the Mink agreements that could solve the problem in Donbass.
He also recalled that the current Ukrainian president went to the polls of the presidential elections in this country with the motto of solving the Donbass problem by a peaceful way.
“I hope that in the end it will be like this, that they will come to understand that it cannot be done in another way”, Putin pointed out.
